Independent Filmmaking Workflow

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin29 November 2014

With so many exciting industry trends for indie filmmakers emerging, such as cross-media story telling, digital distribution opportunities, television as a platform for auteurs, crowdsourcing, etc. it’s important to have a sound workflow in order to create projects that are professional and stand out. Independent filmmaking is the most fun when filming, but the real planning and workflow needs to be worked out before you hit post-production. The first impression counts at film festivals, so before sending out the DVD screener to festivals, it’s a good idea to send out in various stages some raw cut DVD-Rs of different edits to trusted involved parties for feedback on final edits, graphics, script/narration, etc. Then when the film is 100% complete, it’s also a good idea to send out the DVD-R screener in the exact format that the festival requires for the best chance of being accepted. The media matters too, and GotMedia offers the best DVD-R and BD-R media to independent filmmakers for their submissions.

Radio Promotion CD-Rs

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin17 November 2014

Ever wonder how radio stations get new music to play? Working with music label promoters over the years, GotMedia has learned there is a process. Many radio stations do not have to find new music, rather new music comes to them constantly from music promoters in hopes for some radio play; usually to promote the release of an upcoming album. Professional radio promoters know that most radio stations still prefer a “Radio Single” CD-R to be supplied to them in a standard jewel case so that it can be filed with the rest of their musical inventory. These promoters also know that many of these radio stations have a “new music hour”, where they feature new artists or music from an upcoming album release. These CD-Rs usually include both the radio edit and the full album versions of the song; along with the artist’s name, music label, the radio promoter’s information, etc. printed on the traycard. It’s not a good idea to email a .wav, .mp3 or an .aiff file to a radio station as the attachment may be blocked, or filtered into a spam folder and never reach its destination. GotMedia sells special high quality digital audio CD-R media especially for important music distribution such as this… it’s important the media is reliable, can withstand being mailed in a bubble mailer to the stations, and is high quality to preserve the original high quality mix of the music, for a great first impression.

Automated Duplication Equipment Needs vs Outsourcing

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin03 November 2014

Companies often times outsource their media distribution needs to a CD DVD duplication company, or replication plant before really looking into ways they can burn, duplicate and print their discs in-house; potentially saving a lot of overhead. Replication plants usually require a 1000 count minimum quantity, yet sometimes companies would like to distribute PDFs of quarterly earnings or a training video for example at a lower quantity; internally to their employees only. Duplication houses can be pricey to have them duplicate, print and package CDs or DVDs for them. That’s why GotMedia sells all-in-one automated disc publishers that you can literally take out of the box, plug into the wall, load the ink and discs and publish the desired quantity of discs with minimal cost and supervision. Thanks to the emergence of these wonderful do-it-yourself disc publishers, more and more companies are bringing their media duplication and printing needs in-house. Call GotMedia 1-866-409-1090 to learn more about which system can work best for your companies’ needs!

UncategorizedGotMediaAdmin03 November 2014

In the video media services industry, the processes employed to take raw HD video footage, transcode, transfer and edit into final sequences for professional use require reliable disc proof and storage media.

GotMedia partners with many video professionals in the Orange County, CA and Los Angeles, CA areas to provide the reliable media necessary for problem free video processes, proofing and storing; whether for broadcast, streaming or Blu-ray/DVD retail release.
